EFL had the privilege of participating in the 2nd International Conference on Climate Change 2018, held in Colombo from the 15-16th of February.
Under this year’s theme, “Climate Change & Global Sustainability: Action for Bridging the Gap”, Dr. Eric Wickramanayake presented on the topic, “Forest Conservation as a Strategy to Reduce Climate Vulnerability in Sri Lanka: What to Protect and Where?”.

The discussion highlighted such impacts and identifies how forests can build resilience against climate change and all the negatives that comes with it.
